The address where fraudsters send goods purchased illegally (for instance with a stolen card). Some will go as far as making an abandoned house look lived in (mowing the lawn, plugging in electricity generator) to use the post box for recovering their goods.

Accomplices in drop address scams are often unaware they are helping fraudsters. They are often recruited through online job offers. The fraudster pretends to be in a different country, and offers to pay the hired person to forward them the stolen goods.
